In response to the pervasive issue of poor website accessibility and the need for digital inclusion, Scaramanga Marketing announces the launch of Digital Accessibility on Global Accessibility Awareness Day on 16th May 2024. By aligning with this global initiative, we reaffirm our commitment to promoting accessibility and fostering a more inclusive digital environment for all.

Designed for website owners, product managers, technical teams, and the digitally curious, this service empowers businesses to create digital experiences accessible to all users, regardless of ability or disability.

Leading by example, the Digital Accessibility website itself adheres to the strictest accessibility requirements outlined by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), achieving the AAA standard, the highest of its kind. It incorporates features such as high-contrast text and closed caption for pre-recorded video content.

Testimonials

As advocates for digital accessibility, we invite businesses and organisations to join us in our mission towards inclusivity. We’re offering a Charter, an agreement that organisations, web agencies and developers can sign up to in order to underline their commitment to accessibility. Together, we can create a digital landscape where everyone has equal access and opportunity.

Statistics from the Department of Work and Pension's Family Resources Survey reveal that in the UK, nearly a quarter of the population has a disability. Digital Accessibility takes a step towards championing accessibility in the UK, aiming to create a more equitable online environment for all users.

Testimonials

At Scaramanga, we believe that accessibility is more than just a legal requirement - it's a fundamental aspect of good business practice. By prioritising inclusivity, businesses not only fulfil their ESG strategies but also demonstrate a commitment to doing what's right for the 16 million people in the UK with disabilities.
